Green Light - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: Skyler is making copies and the scene starts with a shot looking down into the copier (the green light). When the shot lightens a bit as the copier continues, you can see the camera lens. This makes sense because the camera is sitting directly on the copier looking down.

In the show, the Whites live on Negra Arroyo Lane. (00:48:00)

Walter White: Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn't believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears. It ceases to exist, without me. No, you don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I AM the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!
